"Karl - Looks very nice. I am "in the replace all the paper/wax caps" camp. Just do not want the suspense of delayed cap failure. And figure a host of leaking caps on the B+ just stresses the high voltage circuit by drawing extra…"

"That set looks beautiful.  I am with you on powering up the sets.  I just go over the electrolytics (usually just replace them) and bring set up carefully.   If it comes up, you can work a section at a time making sure it still…"

Philly face board & speaker boards

I have a 9 knob AM FM Philly face board & speaker board from a Chippendale Grande cabinet, and a speaker board from a Warrington. Both speaker boards cut for the 15" speaker and the Chippendale Grande speaker board has the cutouts for the tweeters. The placement of the 15" speaker for the Warrington board is such that tweeters cannot be installed correctly. No escutcheons on the face board, no grille cloth on the speaker boards.Free, just pay for shipping.Thanks, KarlSee More

"Not unusual for the tweeters to be mounted so high behind the console grill that the cabinet obscures a portion of the tweeter cones. Does not seem to matter."

"Thanks Scott, this picture helps a lot. You're right David, when I was laying out the tweeters they were almost touching the woofer frame."
